Well, here is my first attempt at my own pattern. Woohoo!!! I'm sure I'm not the first to create this scarf. Actually, I'm positive I'm not cause I saw a picture of a similar scarf on Pinterest. :) That was my inspiration. But I didn't find a pattern. Soooooo... I created one!
Please forgive any mistakes I made. If you have any questions about the pattern, feel free to ask and I will try by best to clarify :)
For starters, I think I used about 3oz of yarn (you can pretty much use scraps for this scarf)
I used an H (5mm) crochet hook
(This pattern is pretty flexible, so you can use whatever size hook you feel inclined to use) :)
DC: Double Crochet
SC: Single Crochet
DC in 3rd st from hook
DC all the way across.
Ch 2, turn. DC all the way across, DC in top of Ch 3.
*Ch 2, turn, DC across*
Repeat *-* 2 more times or until desired thickness (mine was 5 rows total)
Repeat pattern 2 more times (3 "strands" total)
SC along the long sides in a contrasting color
Now, Line up the 3 strands side by side and SC across the top (attaching them together)
Braid them, then line up the ends and SC across to hold together. Bring the two sides together and SC or whip stitch them together. Weave in ends
There you have it!
Pretty cool, huh
Have fun crocheting and good luck! :)
